Milena Miklavčič from Žiri
Doing what others want from you?
Circumstances did not permit Milena Miklavčič to receive a higher education after completing grammar school. She took a job as a bank clerk, realising her exceptional thirst for education and learning through self-education. She built on her knowledge on various levels, always closely linked to her occasional radio work and writing for newspapers, and also to the life of the people in her area. She took a course in creative writing, improving her pronunciation for two years with Radio Slovenia. She makes considerable preparations for each show by reading literature on a given topic, and also where necessary by consulting experts. She reads a great deal; in recent years a considerable amount of poetry. She also reads newspapers and magazines with a variety of viewpoints so that she can create an independent opinion. Alongside her journalism work, she has also conducted important ethnological research.
